Advanced Grammar for English Teachers

1-2

Modules One-Two:

Module One: How are Words Formed?

Do you ever think about how words, or parts of words can be joined together to change the meaning or to make brand new words. Learn how words enter the English language and how they change over time so that you can share this knowledge with your students.

Module Two: How to Arrange Words into Sentences

Did you know that there are around 171,000 words in the English language? Don’t worry, you’ll only be asked to teach a few hundred of those! In this module, you will learn about building words into sentences and be ready to help students to create their own grammatically correct statements, whether they are simple, compound or complex.

3-4

Modules Three-Four:

Module Three: Time to Talk Tenses

Were you taught that there were three tenses: Past, Present and Future? Would it surprise you to know that there are in fact 12 (or 13, depending on who you ask) tenses in the English language? Spend time getting to grips with this valuable aspect of language teaching skill. Your future-teacher-self (and students) will thank you for it.

Module Four: How to Teach Advanced Grammar

Many entry level TEFL jobs want you to focus on conversational English teaching. This is a great way to get first-time experience as a teacher and it usually means less time spent on grammatical theory. But, there will come a time when you want to boost your earning power and be hired to know your present continuous from your present simple tense. And, be able to explain it well to students. By the end of this module you will be confident in your grammar teaching skills plus have access to a long list of ready-to-roll activities for your grammar classes.

I took the English for Business course and I loved it. It´s very complete and clear. Not only do they explain everything but also they give you external resourses that you can check. I really recommend it.

I signed up for the Level 5 TEFL course with Premier TEFL and must say I am impressed with the information it provides. Sarah was very instrumental in my decision in helping me to choose the course which would be most beneficial to me and I appreciated the guidance she provided. I have found the courses to contain a lot of information which will support me when I start to teach and I must say, I am excited to do so! What I also appreciated also were the extra resources that were listed in the lessons for things that interested me more or that I felt warranted more learning. For anyone looking to enter the EFL world, I would definitely recommend Premier TEFL. Happy Teaching!

I Inquired on Chat regarding a teaching practicum. While the practicum did not cover what I was looking for, the chat person provided me with some other links within Premier. That was generous and kind.

I'm not far into the course but as of yet it seems lengthy and comprehensive.I'm doing the 168 hour level 5 TEFL, it does in fact seem to take around 168 hours to complete and is great value for the money.I've been contacted several times so far by Premier TEFL staff, wishing warm welcomes and it seems quite supportive (although I have yet to ask for support).So far so good, I'm happy to be studying this course and will likely enter another course with them after this one.

Questions and Answers

How do you teach grammar?

There are many methods of English grammar teaching. These include:

  • Inductive Teaching – presenting learners with several examples of grammar concepts, with little or no explanation. The emphasis is on the learner to recognize and understand the rule featured.
  • Deductive Teaching – an in-depth explanation is given to learners by teachers before putting the theory into practice.
  • Interactive Teaching – perfect for kinesthetic learners, this method involves the use of games and props to bring action to the grammatical concept in question. 
  • Diagramming Sentences – effective for visual learners, this process includes visually mapping sentence structures. 

Learning through Writing – learners are encouraged to read externally to recognise grammar rules in articles and books etc.

What’s the difference between deductive and inductive approaches?

A deductive method involves learners being given an in-depth explanation of the grammar rule theory by the teacher, which is then applied to specific examples and the learning is reinforced through practice and sample exercises. 

An inductive approach by contrast involves the learners recognizing, detecting, or spotting patterns and figuring out a ‘rule’ for themselves before they put that concept into practice.

Teaching grammar with PPP?

Under the communicative teaching approach, teaching grammar in the PPP model involves three key stages: 

  • Presentation – teacher presents the target language
  • Practice – learners communicate the language in a controlled practice activity 
  • Production – learners use the target language more freely and in a personalized way

Is teaching grammar really important?

Grammar is a vital part of language learning and should be considered important. It’s worth noting that grammar is a challenge for learners and teachers alike at times. Understanding grammar is a complex part of gaining English fluency. Teachers should aim to make grammar tuition as engaging and enjoyable as possible for learners.

Some teaching roles are purely based on conversational lessons, however you, as the teacher must have a strong grasp of word formation, phonology and the parts of speech to be as effective as possible.

What order should you teach grammar?

Typically the parts of speech to teach first are nouns and verbs. The simple tense is also a good jumping off point. Young learners, for example, can easily master basic grammar concepts if it is presented in a simplified order, with plenty of practice.

How can you be a grammar teacher?

There are no prerequisite qualifications to become an ESL grammar teacher, however you should hold an internationally recognised TEFL qualification and have some teaching experience. 

Taking a professional development course in teaching grammar will help you understand how to be most successful at educating your grammar-focused class.

What are important grammar topics?

Topics of importance in English grammar include the 8 parts of speech: 

  • Nouns 
  • Pronouns 
  • Verbs 
  • Adjectives
  • Adverbs
  • Prepositions
  • Conjunctions 
  • Interjections

Alongside these, articles, question formation, subject-verb agreement rules and conditionals are also important grammar components to consider.
